Having used the Buy/Sell feature of this web site recently, I feel compelled to complain about the service I received from one of the contributors.
Posting a 'Wanted' request on there and asking if anyone could supply a copy of the autobiography; 'Famous Victories' by David Moyes, a local chap replied saying that sadly he couldn't source that particular title but had one of a similar ilk. Excited by the response, I immediately asked what was the book in question, to which he curtly replied; 'Mr Bean's Most Memorable Moments'
Having read today's news item regarding archive photographs of Audlem Railway Station and Kingbur Mill, I was interested to know why the station building was eventually demolished. Many unused station buildings have been successfully converted for habitation and given how well built these structures were, it seemed to have been a waste to demolish it. Does anyone know why this decision was made?
Also, the photograph of Kingbur Mill and the Shroppie Fly warehouse reveals a fascinating insight into the original layout of the wharf.

worktodo, john Gunstone and the guys at ThenMedia work with databases and spreadsheets all the time. It tends to be more web stuff they do, but might be worth a call: 08458 620994.
Editor's comment: ThenMedia also built the software behind AudlemOnline.
I'm looking for someone who is very good with spreadsheets to give me a few hours paid work.
I am designing a new database for a nee project with a front end (page) that will constantly have data entered and it needs to be able to automatically populate further sheets behind that. Is there anyone who can help? I live in Audlem and need help immediately
One hopes the clump of trees behind the Town Hall will survive whatever building work is done there.
With regard to the subject of ethics and politics - a contradiction in terms if ever there was one - If only a fraction of what has been published by the media is correct, then we should get the worry beads out and polished pretty damn quick.
Hopefully, the recent examples and disclosures of shear contempt for the electorate, are of a minority and there are genuine members of parliament who earn their money without the self serving attitude uncovered of late. Whether it be local or national, ethics should surpass any political divisions if we are to once again trust these servants of the people.
If only the word 'truth' was a prerequisite when any of their manifestos are determined.
To me this issue seems to be about the principle of someone who has publicly rightly declared an interest in a planning application in Audlem having a say in other planning applications in the same area. It is nothing to do with personal issues but just a matter of whether this is the right way to proceed.
For what it is worth I don't think it is.

This decision is worth a read as it is a damming verdict on the attempts of Michael Jones and Rachael Bailey to claim they have a 5 year housing supply. The decision by an independent civil servant shows that in order to make the numbers add up to more than 5 years Michael Jones and Rachael Bailey just decided to cut the assumed time it takes to complete a housing project by one whole year!
They also assumed that the strategic sites identified for housing would delivery vast numbers within the 5 years despite there currently be no planning permission, environmental assessments, vital infrastructure and in many cases not even a planning application! These strategic sites make up 40% of their 5 year supply. So get below the Cheshire East spin and things quickly fall apart as ever.
I begin to think that all these criticisms of people should have a proper name attached. Too easy if you are anonymous.
Meddleman, if you took the time to attend the numerous public meetings where the PCC is scrutinised by the Police and Crime Panel and the Chief Constable is scrutinised by the PCC you would be a lot better informed about John Dwyer's performance and particularly his integrity and openness is carrying out his duties and responsibilities.
